Ricotta Cake

4 eggs (room temperature)

1 cup organic sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup ricotta cheese

1/3 cup olive oil

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder

1 cup unbleached white whole wheat flour

Beat eggs until they start thickening and become a very light yellow color.  Slowly add in sugar while continuing to beat, beat for a couple of minutes.  Add in vanilla and ricotta and continue to beat.  Add olive oil, baking powder and baking soda, continue to beat.  Slowly add in flour while continuing to beat.  I used a basic hand mixer to do all of this beating…if not my arms would be exhausted 🙂  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Pour cake batter into prepared baking pan (I used a 9×13).  Bake until toothpick comes out clean which will be right around 20 minutes or so.  Enjoy!!  If you are a frosting/topping person a little whip cream with some fresh berries on top of the cake would be wonderful!

About roxannesrandoms

My name is Roxanne and I am proud to live in beautiful Central Oregon, originally from Minnesota. I am happily married with two wonderful Boston Terriers, Leo is the older of the two and he is in the profile picture with me. Doc is our younger boy who gives Leo a run for his money. We also adopted a beautiful little Bugg named Kuki. There have been many different crossroads in my life, which have lead me to become the person I am. Some days I feel a little lost, but that's life. I enjoy cooking, baking, photography, art, crafts, nature, change (not in just the money sense...lol), laughing/humor, spending time with my tiny family...and the combination of these help create the whole person. I do have to say experimenting with food has been a lifelong passion of mine and figured that I would share some of my experiments. As with most people I am opinionated and decided that sharing some of those would help burn some of my creative energy (and I always have extra to spare) and hopefully make you think and look at the world a little different.
